Manchester United vs Liverpool: transfer talks held to get £111 million star all signed up
Reports have claimed both Liverpool and Manchester United have held talks to sign up Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz.
It is no secret that Liverpool now have one of the best and most exciting teams in world football, as evident by the fact they are Champions of Europe and on course to land the Premier League title and blow everybody else in the English game away.
But there has been one name linked with a possible move to Anfield over the past few months and that is Havertz, the young German midfielder that has been making all the right noises over in the Bundesliga with his impressive performances.
Havertz has been on the radar of United for some time now as they seek to add some creative quality to their midfield, and it has been claimed that they have been keen to try and make a move in the January transfer window.
Havertz has already made 98 appearances in the Bundesliga, scoring 26 goals and registering 20 assists, while he also has seven senior caps for Germany’s national side, and according to BILD, Havertz will leave Leverkusen at the end of the season and the midfielder is currently negotiating with seven clubs.
And due to the high level of interest, Leverkusen have set a €130 million (£111m) asking price for the player, the report goes on to say.
Look both United and Liverpool are on two different paths as Liverpool are on the verge of becoming one of the most dominant sides in Europe, while United are hoping to get back into the habit of winning trophies.
So it would be interesting to see just who he could sign up for in the coming months if United and Liverpool managed to get past the talking stage.
He has a bright future in the game, but is paying £11 million far too much?
